Olivia!

9 June 2017

Year 3 and 4 pupils thoroughly enjoyed their two evening performances of Olivia! as well as their dress rehearsal to the rest of the school.

As the name suggests, “Olivia” is loosley based on a favourite character from the Dickens novel ‘Oliver Twist’. On Olivia’s journey to the bright lights of London, she is befriended by Eliza Dolittle (from “My Fair Lady”) and after a series of adventures, becomes a singer in a new Gilbert and Sullivan show, thanks to the unlikely assistance of Fagin and The Artful Dodger!

With splendid cameos for George Bernard Shaw, Ebenezer Scrooge, Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson, this feel-good show abounds with wit and humour, both in the script and the songs which are catchy, lyrical, and full of gusto and the children certainly excelled themselves.
